Shipwreck and Loss of Life.- - During the gale which occurred on the 14th and 15th inst., the schr. New York, of this port, owned by Messrs. Bronson & Crocker, was lost, and all on board probably perished. She was commanded by Capt. George Carlisle, who is said to have been an excellent seaman and a worthy man, an d who has left a family in this village, which depended on his industry for support. The crew, it is supposed, consisted of six persons, whose names we have not learned. She was freighted with staves; and was bound to French Creek from the Welland Canal. The wreck of the N. York went ashore near Long Point on the Canada shore on the 15th inst.
